    I can tell you that you're in the "ballpark" if you don't have any obvious deficiency symptoms. If you're happy with that, then keep on keeping on.

    lmao, so you're willing to disbelieve the "facts" about fat and red meat but think the assurances from the mega-vitamin peeps are without guile? jeebus.

    dissonance, much?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    What are the "assurances from the mega-vitamin peeps"?

    If multivitamins and supplements are a waste of money and are being flushed down the toilet; why are they being sold on this site??

This is the argument of adequate vs. optimal.

    Also, overdosing on micronutrients from multivitamins is incredibly difficult. From the studies I have seen, you would have to deliberately take a ton of pills to actually start overdosing.
    Exactly. A ton of pills is not the same thing as a ton of liver. Your body can process extra nutrients in their natural form but not as an extracted element.

    I have always found this funny. This eagerness to disbelieve "Big Pharma" but the meek opening of the mind and wallet for Big Vita, the gazillion dollar a year supplement industry.

    I respect Mark for his candidness that the majority of his income comes from selling supplements and also for his candor in the latest AHS where when directly asked the question of if a person need supplements on the primal diet he answered, "No."
